Shelley had been working as a physiotherapist for 15 years when she started a law degree. She found that both professions involve meeting with a client, listening to their issues or symptoms, determining what information is relevant and coming up with a resolution or diagnosis.

She chose to come to Waikato because of its location, but most importantly because I could start by studying the Diploma in Law and then move towards other qualifications.

She is now a director at Gallie Miles Lawyers in Te Awamutu and has worked there since 2016. "Because Gallie Miles is a provincial law firm there is a huge variety in the type of work that I do. No two days are the same."

She is satisfied with the career change. "I cherish the ability to learn in my career, every day I learn something new which keeps things interesting, and my confidence as a practitioner grows the more knowledge and experience I accumulate."
